Fans on Technorati? How could I have missed that…

I just noticed that there is a “fan”-feature on Technorati. It may be on for years but it never really drew my attention. I have four fans!

Beside of Marian Steinbach (whom I know, “Hello!”) I see three other people that I do not know:

  • Tom Roper who is a Information Resources Development Coordinator for the Brighton & Sussex Medical School in England.
  • Alwin Hawkins who seems to have added me years ago and seems to have kept me for my interest in Tinderbox (don’t know…).
  • Mark Blair who is a Website architect, Internet strategist and techno-sociologist.

Hello guys!

It’s odd how people get to appreciate things from authors that don’t know about it. I think this is fundamental that the Internet changes the relationship between authors and readers – more than it has already.

I’d love to see who are those 500+ people that have subscribed to this blog, but I fear I will never really know….

Kinja.com

Somehow I missed the site Kinja.com completely:

The about page says:

Kinja is a weblog guide, collecting news and commentary from some of the best sites on the web. Visitors can browse items on topics, everything from food to sex. Or they can create a convenient personal digest, to track their favorite writers.
Weblogs are much talked about, but still challenging to navigate for the average web user. Kinja is designed to bring weblog writers to a broader audience, by making it easier to explore topics, posts and writers.

It seems to be some kind of community site for all kinds of meta-data about weblogs.
